The next generation – miscellaneous things from Germany & the world

The new heroes in the “Star Wars” universe, Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega), are on the run. What is their fate? RTL is now repeating “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. (TVNOW / TM &© 2015 Lucasfilm Ltd.)

The respect can be seen in this film. The respect for history, for the myth and last but not least for the millions of fans worldwide who have fallen in love with “Star Wars” at some point. With “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (2015), JJ Abrams wanted to make a film that is deeply rooted in the tradition of the series. Who logically continues it and who knows how to inspire the older as well as the younger audience. He succeeded. And most of the nearly nine million moviegoers in Germany alone agreed with him. The sci-fi spectacle will now be repeated on RTL.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is not only in terms of its story, but also its style a throwback to the old Episodes IV through VI that laid the seeds for the myth. Much more, and the new film could well be accused of: The authors JJ Abrams, Michael Arndt and old master Lawrence Kasdan make such extensive use of their predecessors that at times the impression is created that they are dealing with some kind of expensive remake . Many classic elements reappear, even the basic structure of the story is similar, sometimes even the same. Subject: There’s a Death Star – and it has to go.

The film takes place around 30 years after the sixth part, “Return of the Jedi”. A successor organization to the empire called “First Order” is working on a reign of terror. And again it should be three heroes who take up the fight against evil. The scrap collector Rey (Daisy Ridley), the former stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) and the pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) go in search of Luke Skywalker. But they’re not the only ones looking for Luke, who has disappeared without a trace. So the trio has to assert itself against the new villain Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), a person with special skills.

The charm of the old episodes

The film meets the high expectations: It sets an incredible pace. The action scenes line up breathlessly in front of a simply brilliant soundscape. The level and quality of the humor is right. “The Awakening of Power” has the charm of Episodes IV to VI and fits naturally into this parallel world. This is without question real “Star Wars”, just maybe not with the epoch-making size that was remembered from the past.

What JJ Abrams began with the seventh episode, he completed himself with the ninth: In 2019, “The Rise of Skywalker” concluded the now third “Star Wars” trilogy – but the end is far from in sight. The franchise remains a place of longing for fans as well as a reliable money printing machine. After the success of “The Mandalorian”, the streaming platform Disney + is planning further projects, including a series about Obi-Wan Kenobi. Disney and Lucasfilm also have three more feature films in the pipeline. According to the current status, the first is to start in 2023.

Skinimalism, the new beauty trend

The annual Pinterest Predicts 2021 report makes it clear: skinimalism becomes the new beauty trend for the face. This movement is committed to showing off healthy, radiant and luminous skin thanks to impeccable skin care, turning the daily routine of cleansing, hydration, nutrition and vitamins for the skin (such as the Les Précis de Carita concentrate, which neutralizes free radicals , reduces wrinkles, unifies the tone and provides luminosity) in a necessary and indisputable priority: healthy skin is beautiful and radiant skin. And in the same way that we train the muscles of our body, we must turn five minutes of facial yoga exercises into daily to maintain the elasticity and firmness of our face.

Finally, the makeup base must be of an ultra-fine and natural texture, which allows us to choose different shades and undertones, such as Prisme Libre Skin-Caring Glow Foundation by Givenchy, which modifies irregularities and refines pores, or TimeWise 3D makeup from Mary Kay in a multitude of shades that smooths fine lines, reduces imperfections and does not dry out the skin.

Now, the natural appearance of the skin takes center stage and becomes our best letter of introduction.

Out of work and broke the embroiderer of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s wedding dresses

A few years ago Chloe Savage gained notoriety for belonging to the group of professionals that made dresses for Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Her talent embroidering haute couture pieces led her to be one of the chosen ones in the workshop where she worked so that those pieces, which became part of modern history, they will look their best.

To this day, the pandemic has impacted the wedding industry in such a way that Savage, 43, lost his job. The loss of his income has caused him to be on the brink of eviction and barely have money to feed his family, according to People magazine.

Savage is the mother of an eight-year-old boy, a 14-year-old teenager and a 24-year-old boy. Although he has tried to stay afloat with other jobs, he has not been successful.

“My 14-year-old daughter skips meals to save on the food budget… The stress is affecting her and she is also hurting herself. So now she goes to the Children’s Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for support, ”the embroiderer told People magazine.

Savage had a sewing workshop and had to close it when the situation created by the pandemic practically rendered the business inoperative.

“Our work has literally stopped in its tracks… In January and February, we started to see that many of our international contracts were suspended. The work just disappeared, ”he said.

She currently sells sewing “kits,” but only earns about 250 pounds ($ 337) a month, as well as doing small jobs that don’t earn her much either.

In 2011, Savage was commissioned to embroider part of the dress that designer Sarah Burton, creative director of the Alexander McQueen fashion house, created for the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William.

“We applied all the lace to her dress and shoes,” Savage told People, adding that they also worked ornamentation on the elastic silk garter worn by the Duchess of Cambridge.

“Kate came several times. She was lovely. The usual blushing bride. I was excited about the dress, nervous about the day, questioning what we were doing … all that kind of thing, ”the embroiderer recalled.

In 2018 it was the turn of Meghan Markle’s dress that, although simple in silhouette, the Duchess of Sussex asked designer Clare Waight Keller (former creative director of Givenchy), that the veil be a tribute to the nations of the Commonwealth (Community of Nations that were formerly the territory of the British Empire), which resulted in 53 delicate flowers embroidered throughout the piece.

Savage was responsible for hand-sewing California poppies, ears of corn, Commonwealth flowers and a variety of garden flowers onto Meghan’s veil.

(Archive)

In her extensive career, Savage has worked for fashion houses such as Balenciaga and Victoria Beckham, as well as creating pieces for theater, television and film.

To try to keep working through the crisis, Savage is renovating his mother’s garage and “hoping for God” that a proposal he made to make some costumes for a new HBO project in 2021 will be accepted.
